How to Make a Simple Succulent Wreath

We have been getting snow lately. Here in Arkansas this only happens a handful of times a year. So when it does, the world shuts down.

Even though I enjoy the snow and find  it to be so beautiful, I can’t wait for spring. I am looking forward to warmer weather. To the trees budding. To more green.

So in lieu of all our snow, I’m bringing green to our home.

At a garage sale last month I scored a bunch of faux succulents! I got $70 of faux succulents for $5!

I used a basic grapevine wreath and floral wire to secure the succulents.

I stuck the stem of the succulent between the wreath and wrapped the wire around the stem and a part of the wreath. I secured it by tying the wire it in a knot and twisting it around. Then I used wire cutters to cut the excess stem and wire.

I added a burlap bow (I looked up how to make it on Pinterest because I’m not very good at the bows) and excitedly placed it on our front door.

A sign of spring. It may be wishful thinking, but it brightened my day.
